Re: First post - recently joined - GFCI without a ground wire Yes, I realize nobody suggested simply removing the GFCI in this thread. It was just a free "Public Safety Announcement"
It is human nature to look for easy solutions and I have heard/read many times were someone chose to simply remove the GFCI outlet (or GFCI breaker) instead of trying to identify and fix the real problem.
